I enjoy driving and am a member of IAMs, what are the up, and down, sides of being a chauffeur? Would you recommend it?
Hello J.Wood. Great question. Being a chauffeur both domestically and commercially can be a rewarding career. There are lots of reasons why private families hire chauffeurs and these can be read about here. It is a highly competitive industry, so the more experience you have working as a professional chauffeur and any work in the domestic industry can help you find your next job. Flexibility is key, and often the hours you work might be anti-social (evenings/nights or weekends) so this should be considered particularly in the domestic chauffeur world. I hope that helps! 🙂
